Flow simulation with oscillating/limited rotation

Question asked by Felix Chan on Nov 6, 2017

I know it's possible to do a flow simulation with a rotating region such as a fan or propeller.

 

Is it possible to do a simulation with an oscillating/sweeping motion? For example, such as with a fish's tail, a scuba diver's fins, or a bird's wings, such that the forces on the body are based on how fast that sweeping motion is.

 

If not in flow simulation, would there be another way to do such an analysis?
